    Just saw this thread. I did a fast this weekend as wife is away :) so makes it easy. Friday night had the dinner ( carbs too in moderation and few drinks). Its 6:00 AM on sunday now and I have only had a tea on saturday morning and water in between. My Fasting BS this morning was 5.3.

    I think i can go further but not sure i should as I am not doing it to loose weight as I have none to loose, My visceral fat is 4% and body fat is 13%.

    So I will see how after this fast my LCHF breakfast spike up or stay below 6.

    @Mbaker Please do invite me for future such fasts. thanks

    Will do. It is always good to do an occasional fast, perhaps for autophagy. I did 2 days on this fast. Abruptly had 2 overseas visits to Spain on business and a holiday in Morocco, so didn't update progress. I lost 0.7 kg during the fast, seeing maximum keytones of 2.0.

    One of the stated side effects of statins is “May cause diabetes”. Yup, why not prescribe them for a diabetic!
